Kurt Rambis basically called the Knicks a bunch of ball hogs

It didn't take Knicks interim coach Kurt Rambis much time to give his real thoughts on the roster he took over Monday when the team fired Derek Fisher and put him in charge. During the pregame presser before Tuesday's Knicks-Wizards game at Madison Square Garden, Rambis constantly hit home one point: connectivity. The Knicks, in his mind, hadn't been connected enough, especially...

Knicks Not Signing Thanasis Antetokounmpo To 2nd 10-Day Contract

The New York Knicks allowed the 10-day contract of Thanasis Antetokounmpo expire. With the All-Star Game this weekend, it would make little sense to sign Antetokounmpo to a second 10-day contract at this time. But the Knicks will likely not use their extra roster spot until after the trade deadline to give them more options.

Phil Jackson justifies firing Fisher with psychology lesson

New York Knicks president Phil Jackson is of course a philosophical individual who boats a very eccentric — and proven — outlook on coaching and what’s the most effective means to get the most out of one’s players. He’s also something of a social media provocateur, known for posting interesting — if not completely out-there — tweets from time to time. Those two...
